The New York Times is an example of this model of the newspaper as it provides both a home delivery print subscription and a digital one as well. Online newspaper_sentence_53

There are some newspapers which are predominantly online, but also provide limited hard copy publishing An example is annarbor.com, which replaced the Ann Arbor News in the summer of 2009. Online newspaper_sentence_54

Half of the sample reportedly paid for a print newspaper in the past 7 days, and only one-twentieth of the sample paid for online news in the past 7 days. Online newspaper_sentence_60

That only 5% of the sample had recently paid for online newspaper access is likely because most people access news that is free. Online newspaper_sentence_61
